  • Minimap placement discussion

    I, like many of the people posting in this section, believe there should be an option in the game to move the minimap to the other side. To me, this is a simple and effect solution that will cause no issues.

    For those of you who don't know, the current placement of the minimap is based off the original dota. But the original dota only had the minimap in this location because it had no other choice. That's just where it was in the Warcraft 3 UI. But a RTS plays much differently than a moba in that you are moving all around the map in many different directions, but in a MOBA you are primarily (especially on the radiant) moving in a bottom left to top right direction which directly falls in line with the minimap. Some people don't have a problem with it, some people do. That's why an option to change it from the bottom left to bottom right would be a simple fix. There is literally no reason, in my mind, not to do this.

    Some people have problems driving a car with the wheel on the left. They don't force companies to make cars with the wheel on the right.
    Get it?
    Dota1 map was there => Dota2 map will be there also. Get used to it and move on.
    This is how Dota2 games should look like! Game 1_Game 2_Game 3_Game 4_Game 5_Game 6

        This isn't an attempt to fix something that is broken, it's an option so that people with different preferences can choose something different.

        I have thought the same myself and think this should be an option, if not accessible though the menu, then though the console.

        What I wonder is how this would affect the HUD skins, it might be relatively easy to translate, it might not...
